Runners of several counties are invited to participate in the inaugural “50 to 50 Military Appreciation Relay Run” event on Oct. 5. The relay involves a series of runners transporting the Gardner-Webb vs. UNC Charlotte game ball for the football matchup from Boiling Springs to Charlotte (nearly 60 miles). The event is in conjunction with Military Appreciation Day at UNC Charlotte, and is a joint effort by the adjoined ROTC programs at GWU and UNCC (which includes the Military Science and Aerospace Studies Departments – Army and Air Force).
